MV Tuning 2018 Aero Kit

Well if someone was gonna do it, it was gonna be MV tuning. They look very similar to the '16/'17 OEM Aero Kit, if not identical honestly. Very interested to see what they do with the rear to complete the kit...

This is the same lip kit that applies to the original 3rd gen face, and the facelift. It's been available for a while, and an owner confirmed fitment of this lip kit to the 2018 6. The bottom of the bumpers and skirts are all very similar.

Can you confirm the owner who confirmed this fitment? I troll these boards pretty well, I haven't seen anyone confirming fitment of this kit. I can see why the front and sides would fit, but I don't see the rear fitting for this. Would love to talk to the owner if they were able to get the rear to fit. Thanks

Here's the product listing on MV-tuning's website. Here's the guy that did it. The same lip applies to each of the third gen bumpers. MV-tuning claims the rear pieces fit, but I haven't seen anything yet.

@Zeffer @an63lvegas

Thanks so much for the reply gentlemen. That is most helpful -- I'll definitely be ordering the front and sides. I have faith MV will come up with a reputable and "like" solution for the rear; if nothing else, a set of rear fangs that flow well with the side sills.

I've done an extensive staring contest with both rear bumpers placed side by side, I don't see any way the OEM rear diffuser will work with the "new" 2018 rear bumper. The reflectors have been moved lower, the exhaust tips are definitively bigger, and even the tow hook covers are shaped differently. I mean it could all be crazy deceptive, but I just don't see how the rear diffusor (that functions more like a bumper cover) would be able to mount up to the new 2018 bumper.

Obviously I'll patiently await MV to confirm, but I don't see it working. I'll take a set of cheap rear fangs that look the part with the rest of the kit. Simple solution.

If I'm reading correctly, you're saying the hood is different? I relayed this to the dealership and the Manager there has been able to successfully fit his MV Hood to a new 2018. Just wanted to confirm...

yes the 2 bolts that hold the hood were more spaced out on my 2018 compared to my wifes 2017 mazda 6 did he have to drill nee hole on the hood? i will take photos of side by side so you can see.I had bought the auto exe hood damper and the hood template holes did not fit

@an63lvegas

Checking -- stay tuned...but my guess is no drilling on his part. He just did a quick test fit as soon as I told him the hood didn't fit - haha

More to come...
